' A HE idea is to supply a few friends each week, at a trifling 
cost, with the result of research in all kinds of records for 
authentic evidence bearing upon Pedigrees, Family History, 
and Genealogy. These, of course, are bound up with Local 

History, and of equal value to anyone who takes an interest in 

his own surroundings. There's fun in many of the details, too. 

We must get our fun where we can. Here you will find the 
human colour so necessary for the historian. 

One may well be content if the reader, finding in these 
sheets references to pass on to friends, will remember carefully 
to acknowledge the vehicle on each occasion. 

WHERE the document is is clearly shown at the head of each sheet. 
Subscribers not able themselves to get at the documents may ascertain th 
u-llli^sL'jQLciiDies.pn application to the Editor.

New discoveries in Biography <S£ Genealogy. 

Giving the names of those who took part in the minor 
Dramas, Comedies, Tragedies and ordinary Domestic 
Affairs of the "English from time immemorial, and showing 
from whence further details may, by the curious, be obtained. 

Issued Weekly, 


(as from Saturday, 8th January, 1916). 

In loose, typewritten sheets, for the convenience 
of those who prefer to arrange them geographi- 
cally, in order of date, or in any other way. 

SUBSCRIPTION (by post): 

10, 6 per quarter. 
21 '- per half year. 
42 '- per annum. 

227, Strand (by temple bar), 

'^pHE idea is to supply a few friends each week, at a trifling 
cost, with the result of research in all kinds of records for 
authentic evidence bearing upon Pedigrees, Family History, 
and Genealogy. These, of course, are bound up with Local 

History, and of equal value to anyone who takes an interest in 
his own surroundings. There's fun in many of the details, too. 
We must get our fun where we can. Here you will find the 
human colour so necessary for the historian. 

One may well be content if the reader, finding in these 
sheets references to pass on to friends, will remember carefully 
to acknowledge the vehicle on each occasion. 

WHERE the document is is clearly shown at the head of each sheet. 
Subscribers not able themselves to get at the documents may ascertain th 
cost of copies on application to the Editor.

New discoveries in Biography (SI Genealogy, 

Giving the names of those who took part in the minor 
Dramas, Comedies, Tragedies and ordinary Domestic 
Affairs of the English from time immemorial, and showing 
from whence further details may, by the curious, be obtained. 

Issued Weekly, 


(as from Saturday, 8th January, 1916). 

In loose, typewritten sheets, for the convenience 
of those who prefer to arrange them geographi-

' J^HE idea is to supply a few friends each week, at a trifling 
cost, with the result of research in all kinds of records for 
authentic evidence bearing upon Pedigrees, Family History, 
and Genealogy. These, of course, are bound up with Local 

History, and of equal value to anyone who takes an interest in 
his own surroundings. There's fun in many of the details, too. 
We must get our fun where we can. Here you will find the 
human colour so necessary for the historian. 

One may well be content if the reader, finding in these 
sheets references to pass on to friends, will remember carefully 
to acknowledge the vehicle on each occasion. 

WHERE the document is is clearly shown at the head of each sheet. 
Subscribers not able themselves to get at the documents may ascertain the 
cost of copies on application to the Editor.

the town of Hull was not "by any forces 
blocked up or beg ieged , which ho well observed 
by his dwelling at 3tamf orth Briggs. That 
there was free liberty in sending letters 
and messages to London and elsewhere. That 
Hull wa3 made a garrison by the Parliament 
about the beginning of the Suianer of 164-2; 
that the late King came with a goard and 
demanded the town, which was denied him. 
Conceive th that in the said years there was 
no great danger in travelling between Hull 
and London. That the inhabitants of Hull, we re 
accounted enemies by the late King and his 
party. That Lincoln was sometimes the King's 
and sometimes the Parliament's garrison, and 
could easily be avoided. (Signs } .

New discoveries in Biography & Genealogy, 

Giving the names of those who took part in the minor 
Dramas, Comedies, Tragedies and ordinary Domestic 
Affairs of the English from time immemorial, and showing 
from whence further details may, by the curious, be obtained. 

Issued Weekly, 


(as from Saturday, 8th January, 1916). 

In loose, typewritten sheets, for the convenience 
of those who prefer to arrange them geographi- 
cally, in order of date, or in any other way. 

SUBSCRIPTION [by post): 

io 6 per quarter. 
2 1 per half year. 
42/- per annum. 

227, Strand (by temple bar), 

^JpHE idea is to supply a few friends each week, at a trifling 
cost, with the result of research in all kinds of records for 
authentic evidence bearing upon Pedigrees, Family History, 
and Genealogy. These, of course, are bound up with Local 

History, and of equal value to anyone who takes an interest in 
his own surroundings. There's fun in many of the details, too. 
We must sret our fun where we can. Here you will find the 

O J 

human colour so necessary for the historian. 

One may well be content if the reader, finding in these 
sheets references to pass on to friends, will remember carefully 
to acknowledge the vehicle on each occasion. 

WHERE the document is is clearly shown at the head of each sheet. 
Subscribers nut able themselves to get at the documents may ascertain the 
cost of copies on application to the Editor.

cost, with the result of research in all kinds of records for 
authentic evidence bearing upon Pedigrees, Family History,

History, and of equal value to anyone who takes an interest in 
his own surroundings. There's fun in many of the details, too. 
We must get our fun where we can. Here you will find the 
human colour so necessary for the historian.

'"jpHE idea is to supply a few friends each week, at a trifling 
cost, with the result of research in all kinds of records for 
authentic evidence bearing upon Pedigrees, Family History, 
and Genealogy. These, of course, are bound up with Local 

History, and of equal value to anyone who takes an interest in 
his own surroundings. There's fun in many of the details, too. 
We must get our fun. where we can. Here you will find the 
human colour so necessary for the historian. 

One may well be content if the reader, finding in these

to acknowledge the vehicle on each occasion.
